BREAKING: Four Players Suspended After Ohio State Buckeyes Kneel For National Anthem

The craziness that has consumed the NFL has now infected college football. Taking a cue from their idols, the entire Buckeye team knelt during the National Anthem on Monday to protest police doing their jobs, white people, the fact that Madea movies don’t get the ratings they used to, and whatever other crazy things have been tacked on to this ongoing insult to our national anthem, our flag, and our servicemen who fought and died to protect both.

The four ringleaders of the effort – Running back Bri’onte Dunn, Wide receiver Jeff Freene, Tight end Marcus Baugh, and Defensive back Cam Burrows – were identified by the university and suspended from all extracurricular activities for the rest of the semester.

“We understand protest, but there is a time and place for everything,” Assistant Dean Mark Keller told the Columbus Journal. “These students, because above all else they are students who represent the school, chose to violate not only our code of conduct but to do it in uniform.”

Asked what they intended to do about the players missing from the roster, Keller said that “plenty of students” would “be overjoyed to play and simultaneously respect our nation.”

The students, who are all African-American, say they intend to appeal the suspension.
